Salted Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies
The worst part about a long weekend where the weather is fantastic is having to go back to work the next day. Unless, there are fresh baked cookies waiting for you. So despite being a little sunburned and not wanting to open my laptop … I figured I owe it to my coworkers to bake something this afternoon.
I made potato chip cookies earlier this year (pre-blog) and I had covered them in melted chocolate first and then put them in the cookie. But today I’m being lazy and decided that just adding more chocolate chips than normal to the batter would essentially yield the same result. I recommend using ridged potato chips (I used Wavy Lays). I don’t really have a scientific reason why, but maybe just because they tend to taste better.
